(AP) A. J. Foyt Jr. needs one rnpre rophy to wrap up the greatest all-around career In American auto racing history -- an unequaled fourth victory in the annual 509-mile Memorial Day race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The muscular Houston, Tei., driver has brought a half-million dollars' worth of equipment to the 61-year-old Speedway, along with legendary determination, the strength of a yearling bull and the know-how from a record 174 starts in U.S. championship races. He set a piston engine record of 170.568 m.p.h. in last year's 10-mile trials for the 500 to win the No. 1 starting position. He led the race 165 miles but » broken manifold weld put him in the pits for 2 minutes. He finished eighth in spite of it. This year Foyt is relaxed and confident that the Coyote-Fords built in his own Houston factory are as good as anything in the field. "They're drastically changed," Foyt said, "with lower centers of gravity and some things a little complicated to explain to the general pubic." "I'd like to win the pole po- lition for the third time, but 'm a lot more interested in winning the race for the fourth time," Foyt said. "Everything is looking good." Nobody knows his way around the 2 Mi-mile Speedway elter than Foyt whose string of 1 straight starts in the 500 s unequaled by anybody else in the field. He won in 1961, 1964 and 1967. He also has won an unprecedented five U.S. Auto Club national championships in 1960, 1961, 1963, 1964 and 19S7. At the age of 35, Foyt has raced in 491 USAC events and 'inished among the lop three in 24. His 42 victories in cham- Monship races is a record since he national circuit opened in 1902. Foyt has made millions from lis driving and business ventures. He took over the building of Ford's overhead camshaft ·acing engines this year and las put 24 of them together. They sell for $28,875 apiece. You could eat off the floor of Foyt's immaculate garage in :he Speedway's Gasoline alley. A sign on the back wall says: "Luck is where preparation meets opportunity."

(AP)--Oklahoma, boasting three defending individual champions, is a solid favorite to capture an unprecedented fiflh straight Big Eight tennis championship here Friday and Saturday. The Sooners, headed by basketball slar Scoll Martin, loom heads above the field jusl as they were a year ago when they won the title at Ames, Iowa, with 21 points. Colorado and Oklahoma State tied for a distant second with eight points each. Martin, generally regarded as the top sophomore guard in conference baskelball lasl winter, had won 14 straight matches in the most recent Big Eight statistical report. He his conference No. 2 defend singles title. He also teamed to win No. 2 doubles last spring as a freshman. The Sooners' No. 1 singles star is Glen Mullins, who returns to defend both in singles and doubles. Also back for OU are No. 5 champion Jack Theimer, who moves up to No. 3 singles this year, and veteran Terry Snow. Oklahoma is expected to pad play in the Colonial but added, I H S remarkable record of claim"I have no plans beyond that."!
